TORONTO — Pamela Anderson praised her sons as “gentlemen” this week and said she is surprised they turned out so well.
“I’m really fortunate because it could have been a disaster,” the 47-year-old actress said on the episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show that aired Wednesday.
“They’re genetically loaded,” Anderson said of her sons with Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee.
The former Baywatch star said Brandon, 18, and Dylan, 17, are “great kids.”
She gushed: “I’m so proud of them, that they’re such gentlemen. They spoil everybody rotten. They spoil me rotten.
“They’re just real sweethearts.”
The boys, who attended boarding school in Anderson’s native B.C., will soon be in university.
Anderson told DeGeneres both teens have girlfriends. “My youngest is a real romantic,” she said. “My oldest, the phone doesn’t stop ringing.”
She said Brandon got a lot of positive attention after she brought him to the L.A. premiere of The Gunman in March.
In an interview last year with Healthy Living, Anderson said she regrets not shielding the boys from her tumultuous personal life.
“It breaks my heart that any of my decisions affected them in a negative way,” she told the magazine. “I’m sad that I’ve hurt them.
Anderson, who recently divorced Rick Salomon for the second time, told DeGeneres this week she doesn’t give her sons any dating advice.
“They don’t give me dating advice either,” she said.
